Juventus coach Allegri defends holding back Kaio Jorge

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has defended holding back Kaio Jorge.

Jorge has played five times in Serie A and has yet to score, but Allegri claimed the 19-year-old needs to 'gain experience' before he will meet the expectations.

“He is growing, he needs to gain experience like other youngsters who are with us and can help us," Allegri said.

“There's no transition at Juventus. We need to be aware that we are sixth in the table and responsible.

“For now, we are in the knockout stages of the Champions League, and we have a run-up ahead that can be stimulating."
